't they? >> it is the law they must get another plan. continuous coverage is part of the law. >> so -- >> that wasn't the case in the past. >> and she also acknowledged that the two weeks spent testing the site was not enough time. there was concern problems would arise, no one estimated how extensive the problems would in fact be. >> clearly looking back, it would have been ideal to do it differently. we had a product that frankly people have been waiting decades to have access to affordable health care. clearly the testing should have been longer, should have been more sufficient. >> nbc news capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell joins us live. we watch hours upon hours of questioning but it seems as if the ball essentially moved to december, when this will essentially be a reboot to see where things stand. basically i'm saying nothing was accomplished and we knew her answers and heard them from the administration before and this is a wait and see period. >> she reassured members of congress again and again that she is confident about the november 30th deadline that is sort t
testifying this afternoon. law makers want to know how long it is going on and who knew about it. the white house said president obama did not know that the nsa was monitoring the phone calls. >> lou dobbes makes a good point. you wonder how much of that sebelius will talk about tomorrow? >> you wonder if they know? >> or her answer every time they badger her with a question. >>> law makers looking to the answer to so many questions of what the government knew and web site. what do the web site delays mean for the implementation of the law. >>> one year ago today a monster storm settled over the northeast affecting millions of people and the recovery and progress made since super storm sandy. >>> and bringing terrorist to justice on benghazi. we'll talk on a law makers looking for that exact answer, next. >> every time i see this on tv, i see bloody finger prints crawling down the wall and i keep asking everybody. do they belong to my son? and no one has told me anything.

. and then deval did the right thing by picking up the torch and working to make the law work even better. and it's because you guys had a proven model that we built the affordable care act on this template of proven bipartisan success. your law was the model for the nation's law. so let's look at what's happened. today the affordable care act requires insurance companies to abide by some of the strongest consumer protections this country has ever known. a true patients bill of rights. no more did he say crim naturing against kids with preexisting conditions.scriminating against kids with preexisting conditions. no more dropping your policy when you get sick and need it most. no more lifetime limits or restrictive annual limits. most plans now have to cover free preventive care, like mammograms and birth control. young people can stay on their parents' plans until they turn 26. all of this is in place right now. it is working right now. now, the last element of this began on october 1st. so when the affordable care act created a new marketplace for quality, private insurance plans for the 15% or
promise to getting the law passed if you like your doctor you can keep him, if you like your plan you can keep it. completely violated. completely untrue. in the wake of that, the democrats pull out a page from an old playbook which is, "it's not our fault." how does that play? >> i don't think it works. the president of the united states is on video dozens of times making the promise, repeating it, being emphatic about it. not that he said oegsally in passing if you like your plan you can keep it. he was saying this in response to republican claims that you would not be able to keep your plan even if you liked it. basically the defenders of the law have no arguments to make now. so they've got to choose two villains. one republicans in congress. the other, a valerie jarrett tweet, the president speaking in boston trying to villify insurance companies. you have now seen it in hearings the other day. >> they blame cancellations on the insurance companies who are obeying the laws they passed. >> right. >> the insurance companies are cancelling people because obama care requires them to. >>
care law that i think is bad for patients as well as doctors and nurses to take care of them as well as the taxpayers this -- the problems with the bad side are only the tip of the expert. the law itself is fatally flawed in terms of keeping your doctor and all of these cancellations of policies. gerri: i will show some numbers. we have been running a tally on the cancellations. i have something. if you add up all these numbers from all over the country, hundreds of thousands of people getting cancellations. kathleen sebelius was saying that there not cancellations. if they are not, what are they? >> there cancellations, and there are more than some. more and more of these grand father plans will have to make enough changes to comply that there will be canceled, no longer legal for sale which is bad. >> the regulations they wrote after words. the tower of regulations. they've really got very restricted in the regulations when the president said if you like your insurance to keep it. really only if the white house likes your insurance you can keep their insurance. the white house is n
, remember when a texas lawmaker filibustered a strict new abortion law only to have the legislature pass it anyway in a special session? well, a u.s. district judge just threw that law out. good afternoon, everyone. welcome to "the lead." i'm jake tapper. in the national lead, we begin by asking of the president those two questions that always seem to go hand in hand. what did he know and when did he know it. regarding the nsa tapping the phones of nearly three dozen world leaders. add president obama himself to the list of those surprised to learn it was going on. a senior administration official tells me president obama did not learn until recently of the nsa surveillance of other world leaders including allies, confirming a report that first appeared in this morning's "wall street journal," citing u.s. officials that the white house did not know until an internal review over the summer after which it ended some of those programs. the senior administration official tells me the program that monitored the phone of german chancellor angela merkel did not end until quite recently. the whi
the health care law. >> if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. these folks need to stop scaring everybody. if you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. nobody's going to force you to leave your health care plan. if you like your doctor, you keep seeing your doctor. i don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care. but the point is i don't want insurance company bureaucrats meddling in your health care either. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep it. if you're one of more than the 250 million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. >> well, now, that promise is proving impossible to keep and we're hearing from people who buy their insurance on the individual market like self-employed realtor debra who recently got a notice from her insurer saying her policy will no longer be offered because of the new requirements in the law. >> all i want is what i currently have. i want to keep my doctors, and i would like to have lower premiums. >> the health care law require
as the president stood in boston's historic faneuel hall where mitt romney signed into law the health care plan that became the prototype for obama care. >> there's no denying it. right now the web site is too slow. team people have gotten stuck. and i am not happy about it. and i take full responsibility for making sure it gets fixed asap. >> mr. obama argued romney care wasn't perfect at first, either. >> enrollment was extremely slow. within a month, only about 100 people had signed up. >> but there are also big ditcheses. former romney aides like ex-spokesman ryan williams are disgusted with the comparisons. >> what do you make of that? >> pathetic. >> romney had the late senator ted kennedy by his side, a bipartisan achievement the president wasn't able to match. >> president obama has not done a good job managing the process. he has not hired competent people to run this program. i think we're seeing the disastrous results of that right now. >> romney also rejected the comparison in a statement, saying "had president obama actually learned the lessons of massachusetts health care the inst
. if you had a plan before the law passed in 2010 the president said you could keep it, and you can, unless your insurer makes major changes. that turnover has been going on for decades. listen to one of florida's top executives talking about it. >> we're not cutting people. we're transitioning people. what we've been doing is informing folks that their plan doesn't meet the test of the essential health benefits. therefore, they have a choice of many options that we make available through the exchange. and in fact, with subsidy, many people will be getting better plans at a lesser cost. >> he's right. this is like your car being recalled by the manufacturer because the brakes don't work. you're getting a better product. the white house may have oversold how little change there would be in the individual market, but there's no conspiracy sear. the individual market has been broken for a very long time. but today that changes. if you have a pre-existing condition like high blood pressure or asthma, you can no longer be denied or forced to pay more. half of americans in the individual market w
, we'll have to charge more. there are reasons to not be too afraid. the law has various complicated mechanisms that compensate insurers, a lot of cost will get transferred to taxpayers and that's a problem for the federal budget but may not be a problem for the insurance market. as long as the system is working right for 2015, the insurers will say we had an unusual circumstance where we ended up with a lot of sick people and now cross our fingers, it is working in 2015 and we expect more signups. they may not push the rates up so much. the insurers have a lot of reasons to want it to work. they don't want a death spiral with skyrocketing insurance rates more than any of the rest of us do. it's not time to panic yet. the sooner the better they can get the website fixed the less we have to worry about the enrollment problems. >> extending and delaying was not an original part of the plan, but neither were the incredibly problematic glitches that we're having to deal with now. there's -- i'm really not that surprised you have a number of democrats pushing the extending at least the en
, the way the law is written -- >> it's a yes or no. let's say you're wrong on that. yes or no, if you're wrong, will you? >> i don't want misinformation to american public. i don't want to give misinformation -- >> i want you to research -- if you're wrong -- will you go into the exchanges? >> if i'm wrong -- >> if you can, will you? that's a yes or no. >> reporter: those are the two being pushed out by the rnc rapid response team, circling in on the answer by sebelius where she says whatever, that is something which you're ever before a congressional committee you never want to say because it will go viral quite quickly. it's a very contentious issue on capitol hill right now because a lot of members are going to enroll staffs in the d.c. exchange and they want to have the same standard for the administration and that's why she got hit hard with that. overall from conversations i've had with republicans and democrats, the general consensus is at a sebelius kept her head above water and took fault for what happened and accepted blame. she said it was a debacle. she said it wasn't acce
from law enforcement to the scene. fox news citing an fbi spokespersons' saying allegedly three people reportedly been shot and killed in this incident but we will continue to follow. cheryl: did these happen before the security process or after the security clearance. and tracked down serious reports at this moment but the headline three debt and it appears including the gunman as well but two additional people were killed in this morning's shooting. ashley: at happened at 9:30 pacific time, 12:30 in the afternoon on the east coast and as you can see the fbi to fox news three dead in shooting at lax airport terminal 3. you are familiar with this airport, you fly in and out of there because you are from southern california. >> the holiday season not quite under way but a busy travel day and a lot of people coming home from business trips throughout southern california. appears looking at law-enforcement they are moving slowly so not a lot of urgency. the situation wraping up so we are continuing to follow this situation. terminal 3 out of lax, shots were fired. all the passengers in th
. the supreme court rejecting oklahoma's appeal to reinstate its strict law banning medical abortions, specifically those performed with the drug ru486 known as the abortion pill. the court initially agreed to take up the appeal this spring but later asked oklahoma's court to clarify what the law covered. the court responded by saying the measure effectively bans all medical abortions. that apparently wasn't enough for justices and now oklahoma's supreme court decision avoiding the law will remain intact. pete williams joins us live. this is one of a number of abortion related cases and high court is expected to consider soon. >> right, but consider the importance of what the court did here. as a technical legal matter, what the supreme court did here today, no presidential value and expressed no view on the laws and said we're not going to hear this case after all. consider the fact in the spring when it looked like enthuse law in oklahoma was to restrict not to ban the use of ru486 and one other pill for medicinal purposes the supreme court was willing to look at that. oklahoma said
benefits of this law, and this outreach is coming as the administration keeps getting hit with headlines like this in "usa today." small firms race health deadline. in the "washington post" sticker shock leads to anger. add to all of this that the associated press now estimating that more than three million people have already received cancellation notices from their insurers. >> why did not you or somebody else say to him, mr. president, don't say no matter what, you're going to keep your health care plan? >> hindsight is 20/20. >> that's why you're there is to say it's not hindsight. >> re-election rival and former governor mitt romney and on "meet the press" this weekend where he accused the president of dishonesty and had this warning about the president's second term. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is that he told people they could keep their insurance and that was not the truth. and whether you like the model of obama care or not, the fact that the president sold it on a basis that was not true has undermined the found
. this is a key basic element of the law, creating a federal definition of insurance. your plan does not meet the definition you are out of luck. anyone would have known this is going to happen. gerri: to you. the administration is fighting back saying that, well, look, the information was out there. he talked about this a couple of years ago in the media. it is all hats. do you agree? >> no. i mean, they never admitted, they never previously admitted until this very moment and millions of americans would lose the health insurance they had. as rates just indicated, the president has kept the line if you like your plan you will be able to keep it. everyone who understood the lot knew that was not always going to happen and specifically the obama administration regulations written for their grandfather plans that might have been allowed to keep going, they wrote regulations summarily in tightly that no one could ever meet the tests. they did this on purpose. they wanted the plan to close to force millions of people out of there are insurance and to populate the new obamacare exchanges. it was n
of the americans saying the health care law is a bad idea and we need to fix it or nix it. the president's approval rating has hit an all-time low. 62% not approving. and they want to send lawmakers packing. >> it's always to the republican in congress' benefit when they don't have anything legislatively to do, and at the moment, all they have to do is beat up on the president and that's working, i think, all politicians should use this moment as a time to talk about what the country needs and what your party is for and more importantly, how you make the country a better place. >> joining me now is democratic senator bob casey of california. we saw eric cantor suggesting that president obama knows the enrollment numbers that exist to date and obama alluded to it yesterday when he said that more people were buying new plans online than a couple of weeks ago. the president has enrollment data that the president continues to hide. two republicans are set to endorse a bill to force the secretary to release weekly reports about what's happening on the website. so do you think, do you feel the administra

counted until the health care law was signed? 2010. and these policies are lousy. >> there is two things to it. there was no extenuating circumstances when he said you can keep your plan. he said clearly you can keep your plan. this is not a minor pledge. it's like the first president bush saying no new taxes in 1990 and 1988. he broke that pledge and he had the honesty to say he was. millions of people will lose it, at least 15 million including people in the small business community. >> we'll get to that. let's stay with the idea of the pledge. dr. emanuel "the wall street journal" reported that you were part of a debate in the white house about this claim. that you can keep your plan or your doctor is misleading. let me ask the question. on megan kelly's show this week, you blamed the insurance companies. >> if an insurance company decided they're going to change how they structure the plan, that's not the government, that's the business. >> but doctor, the obama care law demands they change their plans. >> first of all, i want to say the president takes very seriously what i -- it go
scrutiny, as white house officials admit some plans will cease to exist under the law. >> it's true there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. there are some that can be grandfathered if people want to keep insurance that's substandard. what is also true is americans who have insurance on the existing individual market will now have numerous options available to them. >> reporter: president obama making an obama care pitch to young people. you must sign up for health insurance to avoid a fine. >> when you look at the number of young people who actually want health insurance but are having trouble affording it, the fact we're making it affordable for them for the first time, that's a big deal. >> reporter: a new study shows 70% of eligible americans between 18 and 34 can now purchase coverage for less than $100 per month. that's if they can sign up. health care.gov was knocked offline sunday, along with the data hub that verifies eligibility for government subsidies.
it up if you want. but at 11:36 a.m. pacific daylight time, law enforcement sources told "the los angeles times" the gunman was a transportation security administration employee at lax. he was killed by employees on friday morning. he allegedly shot and killed a fellow tsa employee. authorities will not confirm. fox news cannot confirm this. we'll continue to follow this and our breaking news coverage continues right after this. >>> it is 16 minutes past noon in los angeles where still no flights have taken off. it's our understanding after the shooting that happened. excuse me. at 9:30 this morning in terminal three there. some pictures i want to show you in our monster wall here. these are live pictures coming in to us from kabc. you can see up on the roof here, there are still authorities who are watching over and we've been seeing that all over the place. some have been armed, some have been not, some had binoculars with them. just to make sure there's nothing more going on, authorities have told us they do not believe there is another shooter. they've canvassed the whole area
shortcomings in the same place where the successful massachusetts health care law got its start. but he says romney care also had a pretty rocky beginning. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius finally takes her turn in the hot seat, grilled for hours about the obama care website. >> you deserve better. i apologize. i'm accountable for you for fixing these problems. >> and the national security agency pushing back against allegations that it penetrated google and yahoo! data centers while european you're pea a eur against u.s. claims that everybody spies. you're in the situation room. sebelius got a drilling today. president obama got out of town. he just gave a spirited defense of his health care law this boston where former rival mitt romney signed a very similar and successful massachusetts law less than a decade ago. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by on capitol hill, but let's begin our coverage with our chief white house correspondent jim acosta. the president said he's responsible for obama care's flaws, but he also said that romney care als
selling points for his new health care law. >> if you got health insurance, it doesn't mean a government takeover. you keep your own insurance. if you like your plan you can keep your plan. >> but four sources deeply involved in the affordable care act tells nbc news between 50% and 75% of americans can expect a cancellation letter over the next year. that's because their existing policies don't meet the standards mandated by the new health care law. 2010 obama care regulations also cite a normal turnover in the insurance market. the white house is pushing back on nbc's investigation. deputy press secretary tweeting, quote that's a, not new and b, not caused by aca. for more head to nbcnews.com. the obama administration granted a six week delay. >>> now the u.s. spy games around the world. president obama is now calling for programs monitoring our allies to stop but new complaints allege the nsa also tapped international private citizens. nbc's tracie potts joins us live from washington. good morning. we're hearing there are calls for a major review? >> reporter: exactly. the president s
the affordable care act became law, and you really like that plan, you are able to keep it. that's what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. but ever since the law was passed if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said under the law is you've got to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage because that too was a central premise of the affordable care act act from the very beginning. >> essentially saying if you like your plan and they changed the plan to something you shouldn't like, i will change it for you. first off on the qualifying statement, 60% of all of these exchanges only have one option across the country. so you can't shop, you only have one product to choose from number one. number two, they did the slightest change to the health care which you hads, you are able to be kicked off, no longer to be grandfathered. the president did a wonderful two-step. instead of saying if you like your plan you can keep your plan. if you like your plan, you'll be able to keep it unless we deem it not good enough for
of a republican effort before the health care bill became law of the land to push back on this presidential sales pitch. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. no one will take it away no matter what. >> reporter: that was the summer of 2009 during the heat of the health care legislative battle and so was this. >> on the is it stump the president says if you like your plan you can keep your plan but if you read the bill, that just isn't so. for starters within five years, every health care plan will have to meet a new federal definition for coverage. one that your current plan might not match even if you like it. >> reporter: fast forward three years, that is exactly what is happening. insurance companies are dropping americans all across the country from their health plans many because policies don't have coverage now required under obama care. democrats trying to calm concerned constituents call it a good thing. >> if we don't enforce this policy, insurance companies can continue offering flimsy coverage that disappears when people actually n
grounded. the situation that law enforcement officials say is always at the front of their minds. >> not more than three weeks ago, we took every one of our officers, our patrol officers, and a couple hundred officers from the los angeles police department, and we practiced the exact scenario that played out today. we played out today. and i was talking to the officers involved in this particular incident a few minutes ago. and they said that that training was critical to how they responded to this. >> joining us now, heather mcgee, vice president of demos.org, and msnbc contributor, james patterson. welcome to you both. james, a person takes an assault rifle into a very public place and starts shooting. this is all way too familiar, isn't it? >> you know, i was just talking to our camera operator here about this, and i was asking her, how many times have we been in this situation, where we're getting ready to come on -- those of us who cover the news media, this is all-too-familiar, dejavu all over again, trying to cover a story, unfolding, there is a shooting, victims, we're tr
million americans who already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance. this law will only make it more secure and more affordable. >> well, for many americans that's simply not true. the initial data is clear, health insurance premiums are going up for many working americans and health insurance companies are literally tossing people off the rolls. there is no question that's happening. >> from that podium will you you admit that the president said if you you have a plan you will get to keep it that that was not true. >> let's just be clear. what the president said and what everybody said all along is that there are going to be changes brought along by the affordable care act that create minimum standards of coverage. it's true there are existing healthcare plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the the affordable care act. >> so, even the president's spokesman, mr. carney, now admits mr. obama was not quite accurate in his previous statements. the question then becomes did the president knowingly
their plans, yeah? >> several important agencies enforcing the new law, meaning the treasury, irs, hhs and the labor department. now the administration is out attacking nbc and other media outlets reporting facts out in the irs bulletins and the federal register about the new law. here is the deal, the bottom line. basically they were looking at market analysis that says a percentage of people basically turn over. they don't want their plans and ditch their plans and get new plans. when the individuals get new plans, the new plans may not meet the standards set down by the health reform laws, co-pays, coverages for preventive services and the like, the quote is in the federal register, which is the book that the government puts out showing the new laws, and rather the new regulations and the percentage of individual policies losing the grandfather status. meaning, they would lose the status of being qualified, could exceed 40 to 66, 67%. stuart: of the 14 million policies out there, up to 60%. >> 66% or 67%. stuart: some say higher, some say 80% could be kicked off the policies that th
coverage two weeks prior rinaldi said they will be interpret the law to say as long as you have coverage by march 31st you will be okay we're not sure how that will rollout. gerri: paul? what the white house said it is march 31st is the final deadline but the losses jimmy refers to -- january january 1st. >> if you want coverage to begin on june refers to have to sign up before the open enrollment period ends march march 31st so they signal as long as you have started the process before april april 1st we will count you as having coverage. gerri: it is clear as mud and the date is as soft as a baby's but. if obamacare does not work by jay refers to the insurance companies continue my insurance i have? we have had a lot of glitches over the weekend. >> that is a very open question. one analysis of the past couple weeks is 60 million people with the individual market who buy their own insurance will get a cancellation notices or are getting them now. is the web site doesn't work you cannot buy alternative forms what will they do? we don't have clear answers at this point. gerri: we have de
the president came at the republicans for trying to destroy his law. >> health care is complicated and very personal and easy to scare folks, and it's no surprise that some of the same folks trying to scar people now are the same folks trying to sink the affordable care act from the beginning joining me now, the chairman of the republican national committee. you guy haves gone from being the villains of the nation two weeks ago to suddenly the heroes. how on earth has this happened? >> well, it's not for -- it's not a good result as far as i think something very bad for the american people, piers. and so look, the problem is not just the website, you know, that is a mess and people can't sign up, but now we're getting into really some bad things that are affecting people's lives and, you know, when millions of people are being asked to sign on to a system that they can't sign on to and then they are also getting notices by the hundreds of thousands that their health care is being dropped and then they are finding out that they will pay more money, you know, it's a lot of broken promises fro
to visit new york and other cities with battering control laws that cannot afford to stay there and this is a way to bring in tourists. gerri: apparently there is some kind of law on the books that you cannot lease your place for short-term. you know, this is like an old school kind of law. what do you think of that? >> it is unclear what the purpose of the law is. if it is to make sure that people are not running slaughterhouses and endangering the sanitation or the safety of housing codes are things like that, you can have inspections for those sorts of things. i'm not sure what this is about. no one is making complaints about their neighbors renting out their apartment or anything like that. really you have to look behind what this is actually going after. gerri: it is an attempt to grab tax revenue, let me show you what we might be on the hood for. new york city sales tax for a half percent, state sales tax, new york city hotel occupancy tax and the expansion funds charge. the list goes on and on. to think that people would even pay that is just ludicrous. i don't know
about the health care law after what they have seen, heard, or read. they didn't tell them any specifics, just said what you know about it, how confident are they? this crisis is producing this entire mix of anger and frustration and despair and overall, just 22% believe the country is heading in the right direction. although that edged up slightly from our last poll, it's still one of the worst findings we have ever had. there is a forboding feeling about the economy. more americans believe things will get worse than believe things will get better. 23% over the next 12 months. that sense of despair is true about the american democracy. optimism and the u.s. system of government. it's at 30%, the lowest point in nearly 40 years. this is not a conventional one party is up and is down situation. the question is what happens when everybody is down. the last time we had a situation like this was 1992 and it produced a crazy election cycle. we saw a rise of inside and empty candidates like ross perot. the majority said they belonged to neither party. this is why you don't weight polls by part
